    • TRIVIA (2)

      • Maw Maw is 84 years old, and her husband Paw Paw was 90 years old when he died.

      • Maw Maw's real name is Barbara June, as per the interview when the family tried to admit her to a home. Her last name was revealed as Thompson in the episode "Toy Story", which makes her full name Barbara June Thompson.

    • QUOTES (8)

    • NOTES (1)

    • ALLUSIONS (1)

      • "You look like the horny neighbor from Mary Tyler Moore." This is a reference to the character of Phyllis Lindstrom on The Mary Tyler Moore Show, who was played by Cloris Leachman and spun off into her own sitcom, Phyllis. In this episode, Cloris Leachman's outfit and hair are made up in styles very similar to the way Phyllis wore them. However, technically, the closest to "a horny neighbor" on MTM would be Betty White's character, Sue Ann Nivens. Phyllis on the other hand was happily married, and ironically, Sue Ann tried to steal her husband at one point. Perhaps the writers simply thought of a composite version of Sue Ann and Phyllis?
